Marian University is a Catholic university in the Agnesian tradition. Founded in 1936 by the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes and based in Fond du Lac, Wis., the University lives its core values as a community committed to learning, dedicated to service and social justice, and joined together by spiritual traditions. An applied liberal arts institution, Marian offers more than 50 undergraduate and graduate programs at its main campus and a variety of adult accelerated, master’s and doctoral degree programs in facilities throughout Wisconsin. The size of the university permits a very favorable student-faculty ratio, one of the lowest among Wisconsin campuses. Marian’s programs are designed to meet a full range of pre-professional and professional academic needs, including business, education, the arts, sciences, nursing and criminal justice.
